Aage Krarup Nielsen tager på en sydhavsfærd til de vidunderlige stillehavsøer. Seks dage efter skibet har forladt San Fransisco spejder de øen Oahus mørke, takkede bjergtoppe i horisonten. Senere når ekspeditionen blandt andet til Tahiti, besøger kannibaler og beundrer vidunderlige koralrev. Undervejs fortæller Aage Krarup Nielsen om egnenes skikke og historie, om polynesiernes imponerende kanoer, der for tusindvis af år siden fik dem hele vejen til Hawaii.

Selvom Aage Krarup Nielsen udviser stor respekt og fascination for de fremmede folkeslag, han møder, bruger han indimellem formuleringer, der kan virke stødende i dag. Disse afspejler ikke forlagets holdninger.

Aage Krarup Nielsen (1891-1972) var en dansk skibslæge og forfatter, der er kendt for sine spændende rejseskildringer. Han udgav over 20 bøger om rejser til lande som Burma, Rusland og Karriol, hvor han mødte alt fra kannibaler til paradisfugle. Gennem sit down liv blev Aage Krarup Nielsen tildelt en lang række arbejdslegater, blandt andet Gyldendals Boglegat, Kaptajn H.C. Lundgreens Legat og Statens Kunstfonds prestigiøse livsvarige ydelse.
